Theme 1: How We LIVE

Little Free Library, Charlotte Street

Complete, Healthy Communities

This is about bringing together a mix of housing and employment, local businesses, parks and trails, open spaces, community gardens and farmer’s markets, and active lifestyles.

Our neighbourhoods are at the centre of our daily lives, and shape our health and well-being.

In the Plan It Peterborough process, citizens asked for neighbourhoods that bring together a mix of housing, employment, community and social services, as well as parks, trails and open spaces that could support village squares, meeting places, cafes and recreational opportunities.

Citizens want design that supports physical activity, local food from community gardens and farmers markets, local businesses, convenient access to a reliable public transit service that runs frequently, and safe and inclusive roads for cycling and walking.

What do you want your neighbourhood to offer for you and your family in 20 years?
